State of the Industry Survey Will Gauge Impact of COVID-19


Adventure Park Insider and The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) are collaborating once again on the upcoming State of the Industry Survey. Now in its fifth year, this survey has been significantly modified, to make it both easier to complete and to quantify the impacts of COVID-19 on the aerial adventure industry.

ACCT and Adventure Park Insider strongly encourage operators to participate in this industry-wide effort, as greater participation will increase the value and precision of the data and provide a clearer overview of the entire industry. This applies even to those operators who were not able to open in 2020 due to COVID-19, as their participation will help gauge the impacts of the novel coronavirus. To that end, operators will be asked to provide data from the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

“ACCT is excited to partner with Adventure Park Insider on the Industry Survey, and we’re hoping to significantly increase participation via outreach to our membership,” said Shawn Tierney, executive director of ACCT. “Good data and the insights that come from it are vital to understanding our evolving industry, so this year please take a moment to fill out the survey—and then sit back and reap the benefits of greater knowledge once the results are in!”

“The importance of documenting this season cannot be overstated. Identifying just how significant the impact of COVID-19 has been will help us looking ahead to 2021 and future years as we rebound and rebuild,” said Olivia Rowan, publisher of Adventure Park Insider.

Watch for the survey questionnaire to appear during the week of October 12.
